Here is the first alpha of Mageia 4 (released on Aug. 10th). This is alpha software. This means, it is NOT:
- for daily use,
- for any kind of productive use,
- for writing any kinds of reviews.
It is a testing release for finding bugs, to look out for important missing packages, a platform for further development leading to the beta stage and finally our first official release planned in February 2014. More info about Mageia 4 Development.
